Jen's Meatloaf

"I never make meatloaf the same way twice. It was really hard to figure out this recipe. I am going to give you a lot of add-in ideas since I know people don't always like certain things. I make a couple other kinds of meatloaf, which I plan to put online eventually, but this is the more traditional kind."


2 pounds ground beef (I use ground sirlion)
1/2 c. onion, diced (or 1/2 teaspoon onion powder)
1 egg, beaten
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoon worchestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon parsley
3/4 cup bread crumbs (I prefer to use crushed crackers, or I've even been desperate enough to use cereal)

Optional Add-ins

1/4 cup green and or red pepper, diced
1 tablespoon red wine
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon dijon mustard


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all ingredients together in large bowl with your hands. Form into a ball and press into baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. I like to flatten mine to about an inch thick so it bakes faster. If you make it thicker, it may take longer. Bake for 1 hour, and cut in half to check if done.

Note: Great dipped in ketchup
